Today was that day that everyone has been talking about for a couple years. July, 7, 2007… you know… 07-07-07. If seven is your lucky number, then today was your lucky day. Today was supposed to be one of the busiest wedding days ever because of the “importance” of the numbers.
Well, I don’t know about all that numerology stuff, but today was certainly special in many other ways. First of all, it was another beautiful summer day in Ithaca. The wedding between Ames and Ashley took place on the Cornell University Campus in Sage Chapel. Sage is one of the more beautiful chapels I have seen… anywhere in the world. What it may lack in size, it makes up in beauty. It is just breathtaking to walk inside and take in all the details…the stained glass, the dark wood, the pipes of the organ, the tile. It is spectacular.
After the ceremony, the Bride, Groom and guests made their way down to Willard Straight Hall and into the Memorial Room. This is another beautiful room with a beamed, vaulted ceiling that must be at least 50 feet tall; at least. It is such a grand room. The size of this wedding was around 100 which in the Memorial Room enables you to really appreciate how great the room is. Just off the room is a large outdoor patio with a view of Ithaca and the surrounding valley that is awesome.
Such a beautiful setting was perfect for this wedding of two wonderful people, Ames and Ashley.
Alisha Clark was the photographer and she brought along another shooter by the name of Brady Dillsworth. I met Alisha earlier this year and she is just a great person all around. Brady I met last year and he’s another wonderful photographer… put them both together and you’re bound to end up with photos that capture the day about as well as you could ever dream.
There is so much I could say about this wedding but I’ll just let a few photos do most of the talking. One of the highlights of the evening was the slideshow that occurred right at the end of the night. It was put together wonderfully and projected on a giant screen in the Memorial Room. What a treat it was to see all the photos of the bride and groom growing up and then photos of them together as a couple. Just so much fun.
Ames and Ashley, it was a great pleasure to meet you and to be able to share in your wedding day. Enjoy these photos…
